FRC Laundry Care

CARING FOR EACH TYPE OF FLAME-RESISTANT FABRIC

Each type of Flame-Resistant fabric requires special safety and care considerations.

Inherently FR Fibers Inherently flame-resistant fibers are defined as having flame-resistance as an essential characteristic of the fiber.

Treated Fabrics
Treated fabrics are treated with a flame retardant chemical to make them flame-resisant. The fibers used in these fabrics, such as cotton, are not normally considered protective and become flame-resistant because of the treatment.
 
 

Treated Fibers Fabrics made from treated synthetic fibers, which are extruded with a flame retardant chemical in the fiber-forming process, become flame-resistant for the life of the garment because the flame retardant cannot be removed by wear of laundering. 

 Blends Some fabrics are blends of treated and inherently FR fibers.
